É ótimo ver fotografias antigas de boa qualidade, fotografias bem preservadas que ganham a atenção que merecem. Imagens mostrando o dia a dia de New York em 1973 e nos lembrando que talvez seja mesmo melhor viver em 2012. Os trens daquela época eram meio assustadores.

Todos sabem que naquela época o metro de NY era uma bagunça... e podemos ver isso nessas fotos. Não ficaria impressionado se encontrássemos the warriors nessas imagens. Bom, as imagens são parte de um projeto de Erik Calonius chamado DOCUMERICA. E você encontra ainda mais imagens legais no The U.S. National Archives flickrstream. Cheers! ;)
